Harmonize FERPA Statement 

FERPA stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. 1232g,34CFR§99) and is designed to ensure students’ personally identifiable education information is protected.  Harmonize is dedicated to ensuring we are abiding by FERPA regulations. We acknowledge that information about the Institution's students is contained in records maintained by Harmonize and that this information is confidential per the  FERPA (Family and Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (20 U.S. C. 1232g)).

Harmonize acknowledges that in the course of an Institution's use of Harmonize, personally identifiable information about students is available in Harmonize through LTI integration with the Client’s LMS platform.  Under FERPA exceptions, we are deemed as a “School Official” by your educational agency or institution and are granted only access to student information, which are deemed necessary to use Harmonize.

Harmonize agrees that officers, employees, and agents of Harmonize, who have access to personal identifiable information may only use such data for legitimate educational interests.  Any data received from faculty and/or students  will be utilized to perform professional actions within Harmonize only.  The purposes and means for which such data has been made available to Harmonize is outlined within the Harmonize Security and Data Protection statement, which is viewable here:  https://harmonize.42lines.net/en-us/security-and-data-protection

Harmonize defines personally identifiable information in our system as student first name, student last name, email address and LMS login ID but we also recognize that we retain information on behalf of our system users, including files, messages, discussion posts and comments that may be personal in nature and we treat those with the same level of security as traditional PII.
